Hilton’s rapid Caribbean expansion now includes the island of Saint Lucia.
Hilton has announced the signing of the new Harbor Club hotel in Saint Lucia to its Curio Collection brand.
The Harbor Club, which made its debut earlier this year in Rodney Bay, has 115 cabin-style rooms and suites, along with 10 bars and dining outlets, a four-pool swimming complex, a spa, a gym and meeting space (with more than 7,000 feet of flex event space).
It will officially join the Curio brand in April.
“As our first Curio Collection by Hilton property in St. Lucia, the signing of Harbor Club speaks to our commitment to further expanding Hilton’s presence in the region,” said Gregory W. Rockett, vice president of corporate hotel development for Hilton. “Recognized as a luxurious destination in the Caribbean, St. Lucia continues to see an increase in tourist arrivals year after year, and we look forward to returning to the island and providing travelers with an authentic experience.”
The modern property on the waterfront in Gros Islet is one of the most striking hotels to debut in the region in recent years, highlighted by the aforementioned multi-layered pool complex.
“We are proud to partner with such a widely-recognized global hospitality company, particularly since the Curio Collection by Hilton pillars closely align with what we envision for the future of our hotel,” said Wes Hall, Owner of Harbor Club. “Through this alliance, we will introduce a new standard of upper upscale accommodation to travelers visiting St. Lucia.”
The Harbor Club, Curio Collection By Hilton will be managed by Caribbean Hotel Services, an affiliate of Aimbridge Hospitality.
“We are excited to manage this unrivaled hotel that truly defines an ultimate exclusive getaway in the Caribbean on the unspoiled island of St. Lucia,” said Dave Johnson, President and CEO, Aimbridge Hospitality. “Not only is our team designing personalized vacation experiences for our well-traveled guests of all ages, this island paradise offers an exotic array of nature and sporting activities, both at the hotel and its surrounding archipelago.”
